Blending Business Strategy With Improv Skills: Connecting Creatives
Wednesday, September 16, 2015
From 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Creative professionals need creative ways to solve professional challenges, stand out in a saturated marketplace and leverage their networks to create new opportunities for fun, profitable projects. This means approaching networking, marketing and presentations in a very different way than “business as usual” – and that’s why we’ve created this event.
Improv is a fascinating art form and it’s a LOT more than just being funny – it’s a way to easily connect with others in any situation, from a networking event to a sales meeting, and build relationships. During this event you’ll take part in group improv exercises, laugh and learn with your peers and create meaningful connections. You’ll also learn how those fun exercises apply to your daily life and walk away with new strategies to grow your career and build your business. Everybody wants and needs more business relationships – and that’s exactly what you’ll get!
You can expect to learn how to:
• Use the famous “Yes… AND…” rule of improv to navigate your way through awkward conversations.
• Clearly explain your creative vision in meetings so people want to work with you again and again.
• Leverage storytelling to build a powerful marketing message.
• Become an extraordinary listener and be the person everybody wants to connect with.
Join us for a fun night of conversations and connections!
